You’ve probably wondered, do bed bugs come out during the day? While bedbugs are generally nocturnal, they can be active during the day as well. They are active during the day only if they feel threatened or are in a situation where they need to feed.
Bedbugs typically live in dark places, which makes them ideal for breeding. They also don’t have to travel far to feed or lay their eggs. The best way to check for bed bugs is to lift and flip your mattress during the day. They tend to hide in dark areas such as cracks around the edges of the mattress, beneath pillows, in loose wall hangings, in drawers, and in the seams of furniture. They can also hide in electrical appliances. They can live undetected for days, so it’s important to be vigilant about where you place your bedding.
You should also be aware of the feeding habits of bedbugs. During the day, they may bite you or crawl around on your bed. While bedbugs feed mainly at night, they’ll also bite you during the day if they’re hungry. During the day, they’ll feed on whatever exposed skin they find.
Unlike fleas, bedbugs don’t migrate. Once they find a human host, they’ll stay there and feed on the human being. Since female bedbugs are able to lay between 12 and 250 eggs in their lifetime, they will continue to breed continuously in a home. In fact, it’s possible for you to determine if your home is infested by bedbugs by checking your bed at night.
